Marc Keineth of Millington is set to receive a new Chevrolet Malibu from General Motors, just days after walking away from a dramatic crash which destroyed his 2004 Malibu. The crash left him pinned under a 20-ton tractor. .

This is an incredible story of survival that shows you just never know what TMs going to happen on the road, said Chevrolet Executive Director Rick Scheidt. When you look at Marc TMs Malibu, you would never expect anyone would ever walk away from it.

NBC25 TMs cameras were on the scene of Southbound I-75 between Clio and Birch Run roads around 6 a.m. Tuesday after a semi tractor-trailer rolled onto the car, which landed in a ditch. Keineth said he was able to send text messages while trapped in the vehicle.

It TMs been a heck of a week for me, Keineth told GM officials. NBC25 will be on location at Flint Engine Operations when Keineth receives the new vehicle. Tune in for a full report tonight on NBC25 News at 6.
